call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. the eve of the election is upon us. and the market is confused. dazed and confused about what to do, and confused about what matters if president obama is re-elected or not. the indecision over the outcome played out once again in today's quiet session. the dow gained 19 points. s&p rallied. nasdaq advanced .59%. tonight i want to show you what really matters in stocks, why they might go up or down independent of the election. don't worry, i'm going to give you some picks for an upset by governor romney, although i'm on record thinking it's most likely not going to go the governor's way. but i bow to popular demand. first up, let's figure out how stocks have really done under president obama, and i'm going to use a prism that i haven't seen anyone else use, the five-year lookback. you cannot use the inauguration day as the starting point. there's too much priced in at that point. almost every stock is higher, so it's irrelevant. the s&p is up 75% from inauguration. we need to go back to when the great recession was just about to begin. it became clear t

center on the latest. janice? can you hear us? janice? okay, we do not have anyone, i will pick up on that but we will go over to how the weather will translate to what going on in the polls this is a tomorrow development, most of the country enjoying very good weather, parts of wisconsin, florida, not so much, but, generally, the rule of thumb on this is, if the weather is good, advantage democrats. they are more inclined to go to the polls and less so when the weather is bad. that is the old saying. do you buy that? >>guest: i do, the voter intensity is on romney's side. so, more of the romney supporters are willing to stand in line in bad weather, wisconsin and florida obviously battleground states, so, having good weather across the country is an advantage for obama but having some rain in wisconsin and florida could help romney. they used to rain in florida but that is it. the enthusiasm is on the g.o.p. side. >>neil: you talk about usually voting and versus later voting with better than 30 million americans having already voted and that changes the cram ma. significantly so?

. >> yesterday we ran out of time. if you had a tie of 269-269, show us how that would be possible. >> reporter: let me show you how possible it is. the president won ohio and its 18 votes. you had wisconsin and its 10, either two states they feel good about. that's 269. all you'd have to have is mitt romney get florida, virginia, colorado, iowa, it's very close. the toughest state here to make this se ncenario work would be nevada. it's a state a that a lot of republicans and democrats slightly leans in the democratic category. but it's not an implausible scenario. if nobody got 270 then the house of representatives would decide who the president was, but the u.s. senate would vote on who the vice president was. that means the most likely outcome under this scenario is a romney/biden scenario. >> another scenario if ohio is too close to call. >> here's the problem with ohio. they have a new law that says provisional ballots, and these are ballots that are questioned there, maybe somebody didn't bring an i.d., maybe a signature is off, they will let you vote, but you get put in a separate stack

callum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting worse. three of ten says it stays the same for them. slightly more voters think governor romney would hand the economy better. slightly more voters think that president obama is more in touch with people like them.
